I can just imagine a Disney advertisement..."Now, More Than Ever, Disney Magic Is Right Down Your Alley". hee hee

    HEY MATT... YA LISTENING?


    Dang. Now that I've written it here, they won't do it for fear that I would want a royalty. Sorry!

Finding land for future expansion is a big issue for the Disneyland Resort. Perhaps this would explain any part that it may have played in removing a privately owned golf course (s).

    Nevertheless, the Resort would be wise to build on-site family activities such as mini-golf, bowling, ping pong, billiards, air hocky, Lazer Tag, lawn and beach croquet, and volleyball - although I believe there is an area to play volleyball at DLH. Bumper car boats (equiped with waterguns) would be a blast too.
    Exactly! It is activities like this that make WDW more of a Resort, and if DL would like to REALLY be a Resort, as well, they need to add these types of things to keep guests on property longer, and away from Knotts and Universal.

    However, I wonder what it would be like to play on a Disney course...
    Disney World solved this problem at both Fantasia Gardens and Winter Summerland by having guests schedule tee times. It makes it so that there is no wait to play, which makes guests happy, and it would work even better at DL since it's so easy to just head elsewhere until your tee time comes up. The system works quite well at WDW, as they seem to have figured out a good formula for how long it takes guests to play and about how many groups will be no shows, so DL could adopt a similar methodology.

    I had some great times there too. Memories / Info:

    They shot quite a few scenes of the Karate Kid at Golf n Stuff

    For a short time they had a guy living in a tree house on the course! He was trying to break some sort of record as I remember.

    There was a very cool water slide there but it was removed (they have their first kiss in front of it in the Karate Kid)

    Last time I was there, they still seemed to have some of the same video games from all those years ago

    ah, to be a kid again...

    I think a miniatue golf course on DLR property would be a cool idea. I mean, they have one at WDW.

    Also, Thank you Jaybee for the great aerial photo! :bow:

    WOW!! I never thought there was such knowledge out there on this particular minigolf course! Thank you all for helping sort out my childhood. I don't really remember the other courses people have been talking about, but what an interesting thread.

    We also had another tradition. My parents would take my brother and I on the Monorail for a "Taste" of "The Greatest Place on Earth!"
    Which reminds me, can you still take a round trip on the Monorail from the hotel anymore? It was so cool to be treated like "Royalty" sitting in the nose of the Monorail exclusive to just my family!
    While you can occassionally get to sit in the nose again now, you must have a Disneyland admission to get past security checkpoint to board the monorail in DT Disney. And Al says with reduced monorail capacity only hotel guests are allowed to enter the park through the DT Disney station.

    The station is exactly where it was during DL Hotel's glory days but some of DL Hotel's out buildings were removed for Downtown Disney.

    Does anybody know if the DISNEY owned mini gof courses Fantasia themed I think work out for them in Florida? Is it worth it to add to Paradise Pier or DL hotels?

    I remember the course, My parents have pictures of me "cheating" by me running ahead and placing my ball next to the hole... I was a kid, and I thought my parents couldn't see me... It was just so difficult and my father would taunt me by playing better than me... I had to find an angle...

    Ahhhh... That takes me back....

    Thank you for restoring that memory... I almost completely forgot all about it...
